"With my 20+ years in pharmaceuticals & organic chemistry, I know there are many overlooked natural solutions to challenging skincare problems. I'm passionate about bringing new solutions to consumers"
–Dr. Jolanta Wodzinska, Stoic Beauty Co-Founder
The Stoic Beauty Team is committed to science-backed formulation from naturally derived cosmetic ingredients.
Stoic was founded by mother-daughter duo Dr. Jolanta Wodzinska & Maria Wodzinska, on a mission to create a new standard for water-safe skincare.
Prior to founding Stoic, as an artist and environmental activist, Maria could be found on stilts, in giant puppets, at rallies, and working with Indigenous youth to tell stories about the land, water, the city, and our duty to care for them.
Jolanta and Maria’s missions connected on the subject of water justice. As Maria fought for water and environmental protection, Dr. Jolanta realized that the cosmetic industry could learn from the toxicology standards set by pharmaceutical research & development.
Stoic Beauty was born.
All Stoic products are science-backed natural skincare. We define natural to include naturally derived synthetics, which are natural ingredients that undergo green chemistry processes which can include fermentation, condensation, esterification.
